7:00 pm
>> tonight we close with what can only be described as the most embarrassing video of the day that comes to us from april of 2012 when democratic senator bob menendez shat down with the interview of new jersey, and the secret service scandal was on, and the allegations now facing the embattled new jersey lawmaker we thought we h'd play for you his response, let's cue up this hypocrisy. >> the secret service scandal. are you shocked by what we're hearing about what happened with the president's advance team to colombia? >> if the facts are true, they should all be fired. the reality is, is that the secret service not only protects the president of the united states, they represent the united states of america. they were on duty and if the facts are true as we read them in the press they shouldn't have a job.
7:01 pm
you know what our duty and your obligation it. you know you're there to defend, protect the president and representing the united states of america, you don't go solicit prostitutes. >> sean: i wonder if the senator will hold himself to the same standards if the facts are true, is he going to resign? he represents the people of new jersey and united states of america and on duty when this activity allegedly took place. just a thought. i'm just wondering. it's up to him and we'll see what the facts are. that's all the time we have left this evening. and stay tuned to the fox news channel. the manhunt in california. let not your heart be troubled. greta is next "on the record." >> this is a fox news alert. the fired los angeles police officer accused of killing three is still on the loose. he is vowing to murder more police officers. fox news correspondent adam housley is live in riverside, california with the latest. adam. >> yeah, this is the crime scene unfortunately this
7:02 pm
morning, two officers about a block from here was shot by christopher dorner. one was killed and the other in very serious condition. from that point on however, his truck was found burned out in big bear, a 60 mile or so, the authorities up there have been keeping in contact with us. what they tell us at this hour, first of all shall the storm is coming in there and the temperatures have dropped down into the 20's and expected the low 20's, it's cold up there, it's dark and the fog is coming in, all of those things make this search more tedious, about 130 officers going door-to-door in an area not far fro that truck was found and they'll expand that search out and what i asked them, do you believe he's still there? they say there's no reason to expect he has left the area, but have no reason to believe he hasn't found a house. there are homes up there, and go up there on the weekend at
7:03 pm
that type of thing and look through those homes and see if there are signs of forced entry and go to each person's house and people up there, live currently full-time are told to lock their doors, lock their windows, stay inside. a number of reports of people who have their own weapons legally that have those at hand if need be. and this guy said all along in miss manifesto, he's willing to take down anybody and there's an all hands on deck at this hour and agencies not only locally, but federally that are involved, greta and bloodhounds there, the u.s. forest service on seen and this obviously is a very serious situation and tense situation and california stays on tactical alert and this guy says he'll take out family or anybody in his way and give you an idea, even down the hill here, a couple of times tonight, you can see units, police units, going in one direction or another, lights and sirens and taking every single precaution necessary. the l.a.p.d. which of course is at the center of this, they have taken all motorcycle
7:04 pm
officers off the roadways, all units are required to have two officers inside and two cars are required to respond to every police call and that's going on until they find this suspect. so, greta, a very serious situation here in southern california as you know, this guy has already killed three and the worry is he'll try to kill more, greta. >> greta: adam, thank you. now, police say the rogue cop ambushed two officers on routine patrol in riverside, as they sat unsuspecting in the patrol car, opened fire on them and killing one and wounding one other. and joining us, good evening both of you. chief, what instructions are you giving to the police force tonight. >> we've taken precautions, greta, similar to what los angeles did, making sure we don't have any lone officers operating. we've also put our motor officers in cars and we've changed our, temporarily our
7:05 pm
deployment policies so that we are responding-- or dispatch policies so we're responding only to major police work, that is calls that have an implication to public safety, and crimes of violence and such. as we put it earlier. we're not going to be responding to barking dog complaints until this thing gets resolved and we need to have our police officers available to protect the citizens and to protect each other. >> greta and i'd like to you know that people are safe and secure in riverside. >> greta: and mayor, i was going to ask you how they feel. i mean, obviously this rogue cop has posted a manifesto, which is targeting in particular police officers. he's murdered a police officer and accused of killing some civilians, what are you telling the people of riverside? they don't know that he's up at bear mountain. what are you telling their people, are they terrified. >> riverside a safe and secure.
7:06 pm
we had a prayer vigil at city hall in public. there were no incidents. a great turnout and people showed that by coming down and you know, voting with their feet so to speak and letting us know that they feel safe and they want today show support for the officers that have been involved in this and their families and to let the prayers on their behalf. >> greta: chief, i just heard the mayor say that the riverside is safe and secure and i'm sure that you, know, i hope that people feel that way and hope indeed they are. and the fact is that you had two armed police officers on a routine duty who are not safe and secure, they're armed and they're police officers, this is a very dangerous situation, a rogue cop who threatened to kill more. >> well, for riverside, this was a random act of violence that came into our city so we responded appropriately and the police chief has led by example and taken care of his troops, as well as our city. >> i wish all of you--
7:07 pm
yeah, go ahead, chief. >> i just wanted to add that we do believe that there was no specific target in riverside. and i believe that these two officers unfortunately were the first uniformed officers that this individual came upon. he mentioned in his manifesto that the people that didn't agree with him were fair targets and their families were, and by the way, any police officer on or off duty is the way he was going to avenge his grievances. >> chief, mayor, thank you both very much and good luck, gentlemen. >> thank you. >> greta: now, the fired l.a.p.d. officer posted his manifesto online and here are some of his chilling and threatening words. i will bringen conventional, asymmetrical warfare to those in l.a.p.d. uniform whether on or off duty. unfortunately i will not be alive to see, a man nothing
7:08 pm
without his name and kenneted williams joins us. and both say the community is safe, but this guy is on the rampage and i don't know how they can be comfortable saying that. >> i don't want to alarm anybody in california. let's be candid. nobody is safe and secure until this rogue cop has been captured or is killed. >> greta: and he's got a lot on the line now. now accused of killing three and he's got every police officer in southern california looking for him. he's got nothing to lose now at this point, so in some point he's going to be cornered at some time. >> i took the time to read his manifesto and it's chilling. this guy has a persecution prospect and he's going to kill any police officer that comes in his sight and naturally. sad commentary, the police
7:09 pm
officer who represented him in a trial board proceeding or hearing where he lost his job that that police officer's daughter wound up killed. >> greta: and her fiance. >> and the fiance. >> greta: the rogue cop having the thought that his representative somehow threw the case, or was complicit with the union and the blue line. >> when you read the manifesto, he makes it clear that he not only wants to go after police officers, but police officers relatives and naturally appears as though he's already done that. and now, they've apparently tracked him to the big bear, california area and the burnt out vehicle. >> so they think. several hours ago they found a burned out vehicle and at this point this man could be anyplace and obviously shown he will kill. >> greta, you're absolutely right. book, this guy has got military training, police training, he knows tactical training of the police department himself and he's a very smart guy and very, very dangerous.
7:10 pm
>> greta: indeed, ted. thank you. we're staying on top of the breaking story, the rogue cop has killed and has threatened to kill again. we'll bring you a live report and breaking developments and soon as they happen. and the fiery capitol hill, and drones abrennan staunch y defending the obama administration use of drones against administration. >> i'd like to ask you about the status of the administration's efforts to institutionlize rules and procedures and conduct for drone strikes, in particular, how you see your role as cia director in that approval process. >> the president has insisted that any actions we take will be legally grounded, will be thoroughly anchored in
7:11 pm
intelligence, will have the appropriate review process, approval process before any action is contemplated including those actions that might involve the use of legal force. the fifth amendment is pretty clear no deprivation of life, liberty or property without a due process of law and we're depriving american citizens with their life when we target them with a drone attack. >> if the executive branch makes a mistake and kills the wrong person or a group of the wrong people, how should the government acknowledge that. >> i believe we need to acknowledge that. i believe we need to acknowledge it to our foreign partners. we need to acknowledge it publicly. >> i've been with this committee for more than ten years and with the exception of mr. panetta, i feel i've been drug around by every cia dra director. knowing your background and your education, and knowing
7:12 pm
what i think your values are and can i have your word you're going to be very swift coming to this committee to speak truth power, speak truth about power and even when it's uncomfortable where we're going to have to prove there's not an easy way to go. >> greta: former presidential advisor, do you have any problem with this drone program to kill americans overseas if it's thought that they are somehow associated with al-qaeda, or al-qaeda. >> i've never seen a better claim of-- the president of the united states is claiming the right not only for himself, but for high ranking subordinates what they consider in another country, the hell fire missile to kill them even if they're an american citizen. i've never heard of that before. i don't think it's going to
7:13 pm
stand. the congress will have to get in on this and i think a judicial review when you're killing americans abroad deliberately. >> greta: and coming out tomorrow, which of course, gave me a copy. richard nixon when he's interviewed by david frost and quote is when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal. >> that was richard nixon talking to david frost about what were called black bag jobs, breaking into terrorist organizations, weathermen, ku klux klan, the atrocities like the fire bombing of the greenwich village town house, but this is the president of the united states never asserted the rights to kill american citizens he was serving a right to protect american citizens with breaks-ins, look at the reaction to richard nixon happened. nixon, people were sickened by this, awful, imperial presidency, but this is
7:14 pm
astonishing. >> greta: do you expect to see congress do anything with this? we're so, now, after what happened on 9/11, now, you say the word terrorism and we all jump as we should because that was terrible what happened on 9/11. the fact is we're using drones in countries we're not at war. we're using it quote, on intelligence and we know how intelligence has been faulty. and imminent is, something maybe the person plans to do six months, eight months not urgent and unknown government officials making these decisions. >> i was glad to see it on fox, republican conservative were hawkish and believe that drones are a good weapon and appalled by the president's claim here. i think that we ought to take a look at the drone situation here, effective weapon no doubt about it, but are we killing-- are we creating more terrorists than we're killing? when he we went into afghanistan in 2001 we took down the al-qaeda, but now
7:15 pm
al-qaeda's what, six or seven countries, pakistan, afghanistan, syria, iraq, libya, mali, this is the 12th year of the war on terror, quote, and al-qaeda has expanded the theater of operations across two and three continents. the point is, are we losing this war or are we winning it aen if if we're creating more terrorists than we're killing, we're losing the war and endless war. >> greta: we're changing the rules of engagement. >> the president cannot unilaterally assert a law to kill americans. he's a constitutional law professor, has he read the constitution? >> i'd be interesting to see what the congressional oversight does, to what extent we get more information about this program because we're not getting a lot. >> but everybody, look, every american, i think, realizes this is an effective weapon and when you go after folks you might have some collateral
7:16 pm
damage here. >> we're targeting americans on foreign soil. >> now we're targeting americans and it's not in the war theater, afpac it's know-- >> i think we could send navy seals in and arrest them. we're so effective with the navy seals who got bin laden, there are other ways to do it other than sort of firing drones without-- >> and you're talking about-- you can't use drones on what hundreds and hundreds of strikes, but you can certainly use them if you're talking about an american citizen because they're not going to be that many of those. >> greta: pat, thank you, nice to see you, sir. retired air force colonel, martha, she joins us, and i understand it's different for you this drone program. what is your thought on the drone program and targeting americans overseas? >> well, sure. i mean, there's two big questions here, obviously, the first one, is it legal? and the second one is, is it the right strategy and is it a
7:17 pm
good policy? so, i'm not an international lawyer although i've sat at the table with many experts on this and this is one of the main issues going on in the debate this week, do we consider that these strikes are legal? under international law there's a strong view that says absolutely, especially in pakistan with ongoing operations in afghanistan, pakistan being a safe haven. >> greta: how about yemen. >> the partner nation-- well partner nation. >> greta: we're not-- >> yes, sure. you know-- >> how about yemen. >> well, al-qaeda has declared a war on the united states and their operations are global and so by our own law about conflict and authorization of use of military force passed after 9/11, we are allowed to target any terrorist assets that are associated with al-qaeda or its operatives and that includes yemen and somali and other places. the question is whether it's good policy and strategically smart, you know, having overseen those operations for
7:18 pm
africa, i can give you my perspective on that as an operator. i mean, we go through incredible scrutiny for the targets to positively identify them and collateral damage-- >> let me ask you, the incredible scrutiny, i'm on the outside looking in, i concede that. but we've had incredibly grotesque intelligence failures, it's hard for me, some nameless person in the government, high official, decides some american in a country we're not at war with, somehow associated with al-qaeda and do something imminently and also the person's disintegrated without a process or review, it's a unilateral decision and it's hard with the intelligence failures for me to feel an enormous level of comfort for that. >> if you're talking about americans, the laws of conflict apply and when the americans decide to be involved in enemy action against americans, then in the
7:19 pm
course of history their citizenship has not protected them from being an enemy combatant. >> greta: the question is whether it's a level of our intelligence is right. you know, you've got americans who aren't associated with al-qaeda we falsely, incorrectly, mistakenly think, there's the problem. >> well, having again overseen orangeses in afghanistan for our military and counterterrorism operations, i can only tell you that the scrutiny is very high as these individuals are looked at over many years. their association with al-qaeda and activities and operations before they can even get to where they are targetable, then once they are targetable then there's a whole other level of intelligence effort to come together to make sure you positively identify that person at that location with a very detailed collateral damage estimation and minimize civilian casualties and that process, you know, we're working far more targets than we actually operate against
7:20 pm
because the scrutiny is so high. >> greta: i've got to go and martha, i've got to go. there is a so much to talk about this, but i'm sure we'll be talking about this for days to come. thank you, martha. >> sure. >> greta: senator robert menendez under scrutiny, girls in the dominican republic and blizzard warnings for a huge chunk of the nation. the latest on the storm path coming up and plus much more breaking news what's going on in california. they have the manhunt underway for the fired cop, wanted for killing three and he wants to kill more. he's on the loose. stay with us. i've been taking a multivitamin for years. centrum silver. both of us actually. our pharmacist recommended it. and that makes me feel pretty good about it. and the long term health benefits. and what do you know? they used centrum silver in the study.

7:24 pm
>> new controversy surrounding new jersey senator robert menendez. an aide acknowledging that he contacted past officials to help donor and medicare dispute and didn't know the former doctor was under investigation for medicare fraud and did not in the investigation. and carol broke the story. he's in bigger hot water, he made two phone calls? >> one phone call to a person
7:25 pm
who receives medicare payments, decides whether or not taxpayers are getting defrauded and one sit-down meeting with that career official's boss. >> greta: both were investigating this doctor in florida for how much money in fraud? >> they concluded over two to three year period he had overbilled the government 9 million dollars for eye injection. lots of senators make phone calls for constituents all the time and then there's some-- there's a phone call and there's getting in deep. >> my colleague and i worked on this story for a long time to try to figure out what was real and what wasn't and what we could determine from federal officials who do not want to be named, it was that senator menendez made clear he was really concerned about policies that were hurting doctors and then when asked for a specific example, he provided his benefactor and
7:26 pm
prominent donor, a palm beach doctor as an example as somebody who is concerned about the system. >> and of course, he's a new jersey democrat and the doctor is a florida doctor. senator menendez doesn't have a lot of money and this doctor has a lot of money. >> it's an interesting relationship because here you have someone who last year when senator menendez was pretty vulnerable for re reelections or a fight donate today a pac and the bulk of that money was steered back to senator menendez's campaign. >> greta: even with the air fare, to go to the dominican republic and doesn't fess up until he's sort of exposedment didn't pay back the flight until he got exposed. don't hit the explanation from the aide about the phone call until you start snooping around. there are still a lot of burning questions and you're right the way you say it,
7:27 pm
finding out afterwards. why is it that senator menendez didn't want to disclose that information in 2010 or forgot? why is it that he advocated and pressured u.s. officials to try to help his friend in a port contract in another country? why is it that he pressed u.s. officials who tried to save taxpayers money for health care fraud. >> greta: and of course, his big problem is now you're asking those questions and the biggest problem. carol, nice to see you, a fascinating story. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: get ready, blizzard warnings, a part of the nation braci bracing for dangers, and we're following breaking news for the fired l.a.p.d. on an a deadly rampage and mark fuhrman is named in the chilling manifesto and a live report is next. n. every-ting will be alright.

7:32 pm
sitening a car? two cops sitening a car unsuspecting shot and killed. not irrational to have fear and what is-- . >> reporter: extremely tense. i'm going to say here it's tense. the last time the guy was scene a block from where i'm standing and shot two cops sitting at a stop light and the drive to big bear it's scary up there. people are in their homes and told to lock their doors and windows and some people we're told have their guns loaded and ready to go. police officers, 130 are going door-to-door, expanding the search as they go. and foggy, in the 20's, a storm is coming in. this madman is theoretically armed and ready to kill again and they're checking homes even ones that aren't occupied and seeing any signs of forced entry. a very serious situation. remember the manifesto, the
7:33 pm
police to throw out the book of their plan and people believing maybe he came back down the hill. that that's a diversionary tactic, but when we talk to the police officers, forth coming, we don't have any signs that he's here or left. and early this morning when he shot the officers this morning where i'm located is a burning car that's his. there's not much evidence around that car at all. there were tracks that led to nowhere. at this hour they don't know where this guy is and police are on high alert everywhere across the state and people on the police, 25 people, there are extended family members, potentially thousands of people that could be spread across the state and for that matter across the west. so at this hour, what they want to do is to find him and everybody wants to find him and the worry is what will this man do? he said he's willing to lose his life and take a lot of people with him and at this
7:34 pm
hour they have no reason to believe he won't do that, greta. >> greta: adam, thank you. now, one of the people named this the fired officer's manifesto is mark fuhrman, good evening, sir. >> good evening, greta. >> greta: i take it you don't know who he is. a sort of random name put in here like some of the other names, some of whom are politicians and some are famous people. you don't know him, right? >> i don't know him the at all, greta. in fact, he came on the department long, long-- ten years after i left the department. i think it was more of a -- it's kind of like a drive-by name that you attach to some kind of history in the l.a.p.d. or los angeles much as many of the other names. so, i don't think it was a specific target name, it was more of a little historical rage. >> greta: do you know this area where his burned out truck has been found? and we don't know that he's necessarily up there. we know he was down trying to
7:35 pm
commandeer a boat last night quite a distance, but do you know the area where his car has been found? >> well, i do know the area. i mean, not, not that well, but i've been in that area before, but this is not an unintentional act. cars just do not catch on fire by themselves. he drove the vehicle there. he is not there. the vehicle was set on fire. it was meant to be found and those how i would view it until i was convinced otherwise, but i think it was calculated and planted there for a specific reason. what that reason is, we don't know yet. >> well, the thing that is so deeply disturbing about this one, he's targeted cops and he's gotten cops. he's gone after citizens, who are not police officers and he tied up an elderly man last night and tried to steal his boat and shot people just sitening a car unsuspecting. nobody knows where he is and
7:36 pm
he's made a definite statement to kill and he's got a history of killing. >> well, he does and this is the most violent type of suspect to be on the loose. he's killed. he has nowhere to go except for either in a fight or to kill more. so, it's very dangerous. it's like a cornered animal. he is going to fight. he's stated he's going to fight. so, you don't let him dictate your game and you don't let him lead you into the fight. so he has the advantage and that's a very difficult task at this point. >> and imagine being a police officer and you're up in that bear mountain range and knock on the door and a family tied up inside and open the door and he shots you in the head. that's how dangerous this investigation is looking for this guy because he's exhibited nothing, but a desire to kill. mark, aim going to take the last worden that. thank you, sir. >> thanks, greta. >> greta: and this is a fox
7:37 pm
extreme weather alert. the entire northeast is bracing for a very powerful winter storm. meteorologist rick reichmuth is tracking the storm. rick, how big is the storm going to be and where is it going. >> it's going to be a very big storm, greta. very, very heavy snowfall totals and very strong winds for so many people all across much of this area. two different storms that we're watching here. one is down here across parts of the southeast, the moisture source for the storm. very significant, some models three to four inches of liquid precipitation either snow maybe frozen precipitation, but that equivalent here. that's the warm, but moist part and this is the very cold part in across parts of the great lakes. that's what those two storms are going to meet and cause the problems. winter storm warnings posted already across all of new england and much of upstate new york, but a lot of pennsylvania and jersey as well, but it's the blizzard warnings that are going to cause the worst of the conditions, very strong winds,
7:38 pm
over 35 miles per hour for an extended period of time and i think that areas here around the boston and pro dense and cape cod and the winds. just to the best of boston, we feel pretty confident in that forecast and less confident what happens in new york city because it's right on the rain and snow line and when you look at these, you see that peak there, if we're getting all rain we're not getting accumulating snow, but 15, 20 miles to the north it's snow so that's why we're having a hard time in new york. i will not be surprised if we see a couple of feet of snow in new york and i won't be surprised if we see six to 12 inches. big flooding concerns for new york city and the coastal areas and obviously those impacted by sandy and big coastal flooding concerns where we see the majority of this across much of massachusetts and the maine coast line. greta. >> greta: rick, in all the storms, the snow is very
7:39 pm
pretty and looks gorgeous, but comes down so hard and knocks out power, ice on the wires and you lose power and the freezing weather. i'm going to take the last word on that, rick, thank you. >> you bet. >> greta: coming up, benghazi news tonight. defense secretary leon panetta going to war with senators. and you'll hear the latest on benghazi and senator john mccain is here. and rush limbaugh in the line of fire and now president obama is lashing out at the media again. and guess where he was when he said it? that's two minutes away. go faster! go faster! go faster! go faster! no! stop...stop... go(mom) i rais my son to bester! careful... hi, sweetie. hi, mom.

>> today the defense department's top two leaders going to battle over the u.s. response to benghazi. >> there was no intelligence or indication of imminent attack on the u.s. facilities in benghazi and frankly without an adequate warning, there was not enough time given the speed of the attacks, for armed military assets to respond. >> the united states military, as i've said, is not and frankly should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world. >> did you ever get the message that said they could not withstand a sustained attack on the consulate. >> i was tracking that
7:45 pm
intelligence. >> did you receive that information. >> i did. >> didn't bother you. >> and in place ready to respond? >> we never received the request to do so, number one, and number two-- >> you never heard of ambassador stevens repeated warnings about the-- >> i had through general hamm, but we never received a request for support from the state department which would have allowed us to put-- >> so it's the state department's fault. >> i'm not blaming the state department. >> is there a saying in the military when you go into harm's way, we've got your back? >> of course, yes, sir. >> don't you think that saying has been undermined here, how can people in the military, the foreign service believe we've got their back when after over-- do you know how long the attack was going to last, secretary panetta? >> no idea. >> well, it could have lasted for two days. >> greta: we spoke with senator mccain shortly after the hearing. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: i realize today was the hearing with the secretary of defense and general
7:46 pm
dempsey. i'm curious though, do you know what the cia was doing at that benghazi conflict, what was their job? >> i do not know what their job was, and i'm sure it was gathering intelligence, but the thing that was really frustrating about it is, general dempsey and secretary panetta who are admire, basically said, well, there was nothing we could do. it's 330 miles from the base in crete, to benghazi. if we'd had assets there, they could have reacted. remember, this attack lasted for seven hours, two of the americans died in the last hour. and they believed somehow this threat at the consulate in benghazi was no different than many other places in the world. i am absolutely confident there was no place in the world where there was the attack on the british ambassador, the red cross closed and on august 15th, a message that said they could not resist a sustained attack
7:47 pm
on the consulate and yet, there was no provision made to move any department of defense asset, either air or ground, anywhere near the consulate in benghazi. that's reprehensible. >> greta: and the reason that i ask you about the question what was the cia doing because one of the other issues that came up is arming of the syrian rebels, a question that came up and there had been a long controversy whether or not the united states was going to arm the syrian rebels or not and who was on board and who wasn't on board and some suggestion that through that consulate that weapons were being sent to turkey, for that conflict, to the syrians and i'm curious whether or not that consulate was used to channel weapons to the syrian republicans for one, and number two, what do you think about the response from general dempsey and secretary panetta about weapons to syrian rebels?
7:48 pm
>> well, there were published reports that some of the arms were coming from libya that were arriving for the resistance in syria. but that information that we had was not through the united states government, but through other sources but i'm not clear on that. but the thing that's really astounding to me is that we had a hearing with secretary panetta and general dempsey back in march, a year ago, and at that time some 7,000 syrians had been killed. they both said at the time assad will fall inevitably and we're now up to 60,000 who have been massacred. hundreds of thousands in refugee camps, a million displaced the numbers are staggering and we now have found out as a result of this hearing that both secretary panetta and general dempsey supported sending arms to the syrian resistance. how did we find that out? because it was a new york
7:49 pm
times story that revealed last week that both secretary clinton and general petraeus then head of the cia, had also advocated sending arms to the rebels in the resistance in syria so now we have a situation where the entire national security team, secretary of defense, secretary of state, head of cia, chairman of joint chiefs of staff who all advocated sending weapons to these rebels so they could defend themselves, keeping in mind the russians are supplying assad including the revolutionary iranian guard on the ground. so what happened? obviously, the buck stopped with the president of the united states overruling the recommendation of the national security team that he appointed. really remarkable. >> greta: and i have a sorted related topic. everybody knows that you say torture doesn't work and the now the report about drones coming out of the justice
7:50 pm
department that americans thought to be terrorists on foreign soil can be essentially disintegrated by drones. your thought about this? >> my thought is two thoughts. one, because of this administration's policy, if you find a terrorist who is an american citizen of the united states then that person has to be read his or her miranda rights. if that same person is overseas, then after a certain process, you can kill them. that doesn't -- that doesn't compute, but my other thought is that should we have the cia, central intelligence agency, being the uones carryin out the drone strikes or should it be a military mission. if it were, there'd be much greater oversight by congress, but instead we're turning an

intelligence agency into the prime instruments or one of the prime instruments waging the war on terrorism and radical extremism. it seems we've gotten things out of balance here. >> greta: senator, thank you, sir. >> thanks for having me on. senator mccain has more about the full controversy, you can see it on and immigration law causes controversy across the country and a new one threatens outrage, that's next. rify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. the most innovative software on the planet... dragon is captured. is connecting today's leading companies to places beyond it. siemens. answers.
